Look no further than Lake Mac to fill your Santa sack

December 12, 2018 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

We all know the feeling of pretending to be surprised when opening the new socks or pretty pyjamas your Mum thought would make the perfect Christmas gift… This year ditch the disappointment and give them what they really want – a Lake Macquarie adventure to remember!

Must haves for Mums

She’s washed your dirty socks, cooked your evening meals and is the first to bring you soup when you’re sick. Yes, your mother may smother you in sloppy kisses, but you love her for it. Switch roles and spoil her this Christmas by taking her out for a day in Lake Macquarie she won’t forget.

Caves Coastal Bar & Bungalows is the perfect destination for mothers who are lovers of sunshine, fresh ocean-inspired lunches and coastal weekends. The venue’s newly renovated casual, stylish indoor and outdoor space is the perfect setting for a long, lazy seaside lunch, enjoying a great drop with the family.

Really want to spoil her? Take Mum cruising on the new and only cruise service in beautiful Lake Macquarie and let her be captivated by the stunning scenery surrounding the foreshore. Treat her to a ‘Lunch on the Lake Cruise’ with Lake Macquarie Cruises and indulge in a freshly prepared BBQ buffet lunch served onboard the vessel, consisting of fresh local prawns, scotch fillet minute steak, roasted garlic, tomato, chilli and rocket beef sausages, with a selection of salads to compliment.


Favourites for the Fishing Father

Whether he’s a novice, advanced angler or weekend warrior on the loose, the immense Lake Macquarie is a happy hunting ground for fishing fathers of all varieties – just make sure he leaves the socks and sandals at home…

Lake Macquarie Fishing Charters offers day fishing charters or extended fishing safaris with experienced and knowledgeable crew that will take your dad to the best fishing locations across the Lake.

Rather keep your old man away from other dads to avoid him picking up new dad jokes? We have a great solution – JetBuzz offers a range of boats for hire, from tinnies to a 12 person day tripper vessel, so your dad can enjoy a day on the Lake doing what he does best – and you can join in the fun.

Bag a Bargain for the Boisterous Brother

Want to test how much of an action lover your brother really is? Lake Macquarie has some perfect gift ideas for the dare devil of the family!

If up, up and away is your boisterous brother’s idea of a great day, then the antics of Australia’s only Red Bull Air Race Team will be the highlight of all the gifts you’ve ever bought him. Book the joyride or acrobatic flight of his life which reaches speeds of up to 400km/h with the original speed demon, Matt Hall, from Matt Hall Racing.

Want to get a squeal out of him and test how tough he really is? Why not treat him to a flight at Newcastle’s closest beach skydive, enjoying stunning beach views as he falls from 15,000 feet with Skydiving Newcastle. Offering a raft of sky diving experiences and specialising in tandem dives, the friendly team are on hand for brothers brave enough to take the plunge.

Stocking Stuffers for the Social Sister

For the Social Sister who loves a great tan, acai bowls and a pic for her “Gram”, take her stand up paddle boarding with Jetbuzz. Catering to insta-girls searching for adventure, there’s plenty to explore on the region’s waterways, from paddling with the local dolphins, to exploring the waters around Pulbah Island and beyond.

If your sister is more mountains than H2O, take her on a horseback mountain adventure with AAA Horse Riding. Your sis can enjoy a guided tour with the experts, exploring the foothills of the beautiful Watagan Mountains and surrounding rain forest on horseback where she will be sure to get a picture that will have the ‘likes’ flooding in.
